Today we have given the same treatment to the new 13” MacBook Pro with Retina display. The 13” rMBP was updated with the Force Touch trackpad, a new processor, an improved battery life, faster memory and a faster SSD. Note: The 15” rMBP model is unchanged from the previous generation.
- The faster memory runs at 1866MHz and now has what is likely a radio frequency shield.
- The Force Touch trackpad has a controller now on the underside.
- Great speeds on reads, however writes were a bit slower than our 256GB equipped MacBook Air.
